Subject: She Belongs To Me
Subject: Sunday afternoon in the pit
Subject: unusual and fun show, especially second set
The "youngest" song on the list is Alabama. ***correction edit - forgot West L.A. Fade. My bad.***
Now this is easier to write about in hindsight, obviously. And I loved the early versions of Touch,Bucket,Throwin Stones.
But isn't that unreal?
I, too, got a great tape of this within a few months of the show, and could not believe the cookin' 2nd set.
5 Stars for execution, 6 for the set list!
God Bless and Enjoy
Subject: Sweet recording, energetic show
Subject: Yet Another Reason I Love 1985
Subject: Chula Chula!!!
Who ever is responsible needs to come
forward and receive their prize.
The show itself hits numerous mammoth peaks.
The Boys seem like they bail on the affair mid way through the 2nd set though.
Only 2(short)songs post Drums>Space?
Oh well, you can't have it all.
Subject: one of my most favorite Dead shows
at 1 pm. We sat on the ten yd line of this
5,000 seat stadium and the Dead were on the goal line. I swear they served beer there. The best experience I ever had at a show, outdoors, great sets.

Subject: great show in southern cali
Subject: Hate Aud. Tapes
better than a lot of soundboards. It's also a high energy show dispite Garcia's failing health.
I never was a Fan of later dead shows past 1980,I should probably reconsider the last years.
Great job to the taper.
Subject: One of the BEST
Subject: I was there
What a brilliant song list and well played show.
1985 was a smoking year for the Dead.
A shout out to Gordo and all the rest of the diehards who rolled out to the show with the Smoothcat that day, I love you all!
Subject: THIS SHOW ROCKS
WHEN I DIE BURY ME DEEP
PLACE A TAPE DECK AT MY FEET
POINT THE SPEAKERS TOWARDS MY HEAD
AND CRANK IT UP TO THE GRATEFUL DEAD!
Subject: A must have...
I wish the tapers could get more credit for these wonderful recordings. Thank you, whoever you are!
The guy with the purple cape and the jester's cap
turned me into one happy chap.
My wife sat on my shoulders for most of the first
half,which had me dancing like a hunch back during the second set. Scarlet-Fire, Smoke-Stack...man...I lost my space but the band kept me grounded. It all came back with the first note of a redeeming Satisfaction....
"This must be heaven....here's where the rainbow ends."
Subject: dylan writes, garcia plays
Subject: one of my favs
speaking of which, perfect weather, nice venue with soft cushy grass under my feet.
i remember the first set started out sorta low on the volume, so i went to the soundboard and told healy to turn it up...he did..
2nd set was pure smoke...space>scarlet>fire..r u kiddin me?
great (long) pre and post drums...sizzling samson and great us blues>satisfaction outta space...the topper was that i had to drive home after the show and go to rosh hashanah services with my family in LA. the show ended at 630 and i made it to shul at 830 for the start of services...
Subject: sharing an orbit with god is no small experience
reminded me of this scarlet/fire ...... yeah it's worth a listen .. loud too
Subject: Lots of energy
Subject: Before drums
I didn't listen to this tape too much because the drums and space were in the middle of side b and it's more work to fast forwards (it's easier when you can flip a tape at the start of drums and be right were space ends). From listening here, I remembered how much energy was in that scarlet -> fire and sampson. She Belongs to Me was great, Comes a Time was real sweet and the surprise of hearing Around & Round into drums was cool.
